Hi, I have an Aunt that has a 2006 Forenza that was shifting funny. She took it to the dealer and they tell her it is the Transmission Range sensor. 82.00 for part and 250 to install. Can somebody just tell me where this would be located and if it is easy to change? I have looked and looked and have found this is not an easy car to find info on.. Thanks

It is over 36,000 like 44,000 miles on it, she has a drive train warrenty on it of some sort but the dealer says that part is not covered.. Figures right :)
I have done a lot of work on different cars just not on a Suzuki, I don't know any thing about them, just trying to save her some $ if it easy replacement. Thanks

It is easy to locate. The transmission is on the drivers side, follow the shift cable that ends to the transmisson side onto to a lever. On that lever the transmission range switch slides into it. All you have to is disconnect the connector remove one nut to remove cable and two bolts to remove the switch. Be sure to remember the position of the old switch to the new one, as sometimes they are not lined up to reinstall and would have to make some adjustments. Reverse the install and check that every gear on the shifter will be display on the cluster. The old one would display a 0 with a X across that there is an internal short that sets off a code and into a limp home mode. If by any chance you get any problems with the new, then you can the angle since on of the housing bolts is slotted to adjust the angle since it is a position switch that sends a voltage signal to the transmission control module on what position is being requested.
